Next week Matt heads to Jerry Montgomery’s shop in Sacramento, CA, to collect the Sage 15 tooling.
Once Matt, Jerry and the ‘big big trailer’ return to Golden the first, prototype, Sage 15 will begin assembly in preparation for her premier at the Annapolis Sailboat Show 8 – 12 October 2015. (If you wish to see the Sage 15 at the show let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-621-1065)
The first deck and hull liner are almost completed. Like her big sister, the Sage 17, the Sage 15’s deck is carbon fiber. Sage 15’s interior has a v-berth forward (longer than the Sage 17s!) and two inboard facing sitting headroom seats (like the Sage 17).
Jerry is also putting the finishing touches on the remaining component molds: companionway slider hatch, daggerboard, daggerboard trunk and the catboat Sage 15’s (aka, SageCat) carbon fiber tabernacle base for the rotating mast.
Late August and September will be busy at Sage Marine. Watch this space for updates and pictures!
